Brand New Anthology Prints Selected by Jimmy Page Now Available
25 Nov 2021
'I wanted to include items from my personal archive that have played a part in my career over 60 years, to illustrate the detail behind the detail.' - Jimmy Page
The prints are presented as large-format (20"x30") archival prints in artist editions of only 75 numbered copies, with each print personally hand-signed by Jimmy Page.
The '1972 Tour' print features a vintage beaded top and Gibson Les Paul Standard 'Number One', sunburst, 1959.
'I played the Les Paul on the recordings of 'Whole Lotta Love' and 'What Is and What Should Never Be' and I made the decision: it was deﬁnitely going to be the Les Paul front of stage from then on... I bought the top whilst on tour in America. I began wearing it on stage in 1972. It's the first appearance of the poppy and I called upon this theme for my future Led Zeppelin stagewear.' - Jimmy Page
Meanwhile, the 'Stairway to Heaven' print features the set-up for 'Stairway to Heaven' - the back, from left to right, is 4 x 12" Marshall speaker cabinets with Marshall JMP Super Bass 100W 'No.1' amplifier head, 1969, and Marshall JMP Super Lead 100W 'No.4' amplifier head, 1968. The Centre features a Harmony Sovereign H1260, early/mid-1960s. And the front, from left to right, features Fender Electric XII, 1966; Gibson EDS-1275 double neck - cherry, 1968 (for live performances); Vox Phantom XII, 1966.
'At the time of recording, I was so involved in creating the guitar parts for 'Stairway to Heaven' on the acoustic guitar, two electric 12-strings and a six-string for the solo that I hadn't been thinking about how I was going to perform it all live. That's where the double neck - a 12-string and a six-string - came in. It wasn't the first one that Gibson had made, but it was soon to be the most iconic.' - Jimmy Page
